Cindy Klein-Banai

University of Illinois at Chicago
Asst Vice-Chancellor & Director of Sustainability
I founded the UIC Office of Sustainability 13 years ago. My team provides institutional value in supporting sustainability planning, projects, and reporting, while enhancing UIC’s mission of student success, improving public health, and serving the communities of Chicago. The Sustainability team (now part of the Office of Planning, Sustainability, and Project Management) promotes the UIC Climate Commitments of Carbon Neutral, Zero Waste, Net Zero Water, and Biodiverse University. I have helped advanced sustainable infrastructure at UIC through energy efficiency, renewable energy, grounds, water and stormwater management, waste and recycling, and transportation initiatives. I developed the UIC Sustainability Internship Program that has provided over 200 students hands-on learning in solving sustainability problems. Dr. Klein-Banai has a Ph.D. in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences (EOHS) from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I am also an adjunct assistant professor appointment within the School of Public Health.I serve on the Board of Directors of the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. I practice yoga, raise hens, work in her garden, or visit with her three adult daughters and two grandsons (in non-COVID times).
